Christmas ski girl

This card is for Sally's challenge for the Christmas Card Club with a 'winter sport' theme, so I chose a Squiggle Stamps digital image called 'ski girl', colouring her with copics. I've used the sketch given on Christmas challenges with sketches 21, which also has the theme 'baby it's cold outside' - please click on the link to see the sketch.

All card and papers used are from my Christmas offcuts box, so this is my first venture into the playground this week for Pixie's crafty snippets 11 (and, boy, do I need a time in the playground ... life is a bit difficult atm, so crafting and playing on the swings with friends is very welcome) - also for Hiding in my craftroom 37: super scraps Saturday and Crafty calendar March: spring clean; 'spring cleaning' is also the theme for Just some lines - to use at least two items that are at least six months old - not only all the offcuts are old, but also the 3D stickers and sentiment too. I was crafty today and even used a piece of card to back the image that had previously been used to punch out some snowflakes - the holey bits are well hidden.

I coloured her hair red for iCopic lover 72: red hair colouring.

This was one of those 'difficult to photo' cards because of all the shine on the foiling and mirror card behind the image.
